Afterwards, stop by the Wilson Park to drop a penny in the fountain for good luck and see W. C. Handy’s statue -- the father of blues.

For a little history and interesting landmarks, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Rosenbaum House is like taking a step back in time. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright property in Alabama, and the museum offers guided tours for visitors interested in its past. Elsewhere, the Wichahpi Commemorative Stone Wall is an old, large stone wall -- dating back more than 30 years -- and a tribute to the Yuchi Indian tribe. The wall has a somewhat philosophical vibe as the person who constructed the wall chose stones after an elder of the tribe said everything passes, but stones remain. For a spectacular view, the Renaissance tower is a 26 storey building and the tallest attraction in Alabama.
